Nexus 7 16GB no longer available from Google play

Written by Fuad Abazovic



Making room for 32GB unit


Nexus 7 8GB has been unavailable for some time and everyone who follows developments in the Android world knows that there is a new 32GB Nexus on the way, potentially with 3G as well.

The Nexus 7 16GB is now also listed as a “coming soon” item and users can’t order a 16GB version for $249 since there is a big chance that in just a few days you will be able to get a 32GB version for the same money.

The time for 8GB tablets is clearly running out and the Nexus 7 with 16GB, 32GB and probably to 3G variants are here to stay for pre Xmas shopping spree. However, some reports indicate that Google will offer 8GB and 32GB versions, dropping the 16GB SKU, so take this with a grain of salt.

It remains to be seen if the Nexus 10, a 2560x1600 10-inch tablet powered by Samsung’s new Exynos 5250 1.7GHz chip and 2GB of memory can persuade some potential Nexus 7 customers to go after the 10-inch tablet. Since we have been playing with both 10-inch and 7-inch tablets for a long time now, we can safely say that these are two separate markets and that one shouldn’t really cannibalize the other.

A 7-incher doubles as an excellent e-book reader and can easily be used with one hand, while 10-inchers are a two-hand experience that it’s better for movies. Both formats are good for browsing, anything with screen larger than 4-inch is good for that.

Since the Nexus event scheduled to kick of this Monday the 29th in new York has been canceled due to Sandy [Not Sandy Bridge Ed.] it remains to be seen when Nexus 7 with pimped up spec hits the play store again.
